        This aquastat is used in a home water recirculating system to control the water recirculating pump. It is easy to install and easy to set. Rather than wiring it directly to the power source I have the aquastat plugged into the receiver of a remote wireless motion detector (available at [@] for about $40). The motion sensor is located inconspicuously at the top of a hallway common to the two areas requiring water recirculation. When someone passes near the sensor it provides 120V to the aquastat. Thus the recirculation pump only runs when someone is near the bathroom or kitchen and the water in the return pipe (where the aquastat is installed) is colder than the setpoint. When the pump turns on it takes only 20 seconds for the hot water to be available at any faucet. Using the aquastat alone would also work o.k., especially if all the hot water pipes are insulated. We just preferred not having the recirculaton system running all day when we weren't home and unnecessarily keeping the water pipes hot, wasting a bit of energy in the process. The motion detector operating the system alone was annoying as we could hear the pump running, and turning on and off every few minutes. One thing we didn't realize with this model aquastat, which straps onto the pipe directly, is that the minimum pipe diameter is one inch. We are using it on a half inch pipe and needed to adapt that. Also, it is held on by a single strap and for a small pipe a hose clamp works better but it would be better if it had two strap cutouts and two straps for the installation.

        It was relatively easy to install and seems to be working to control the circulator pump for my hot water, BUT, so far I don't notice a difference in in the time that it takes for the faucet water to turn hot, the idea being to recirculate hot water throught the house. Oh, well.

                                            I used the aquastat to regulate a garage unit hot water heater. It replaced the exact one that was used with the heater. As I put in the title, high quality, and the previous one lasted for 15 years. Recommended for quality and longevity.

The temp dial is set to 150 degrees and the differential dial is set to 5. It runs off the Buderus oil boiler and one thing I notice on a heat call in our basement is that the Modine will blow hot air initially and then when the downstairs thermostat shuts off because the heat call is satisfied, it still keeps blowing cold air for awhile afterwards. Is this normal or should I adjust any of the dialed settings and would that prevent it from blowing cold air? Any suggestions???

The aquastat turns the pump on when the water in the coil is around 150 and shuts off around 135. That way I'm not ciculating cold water into the top of my hot water tank.

The tube between the sensor and the unit is only long enough to reach the sensor bulb which is within the back of the unit. This unit is designed only to strap directly on to the pipe and the directions indicate it requires one inch or greater diameter. I am using it on a half inch pipe and need to modify it by adding some spacers as the bracket is wider than a half inch. When the unit is installed it is on the pipe and the capillary sensor is held to the pipe by the unit itself. The sensor is not visible or accessible when the unit is clamped onto the pipe.

It appears that my system will always blow out cool air before the system eventually stops heating. This seems to lower the temperature down. Why can it not stop while warm air is blowing through the air vents? I currently set it at 130 degrees with a differential of 5

It is a good choice and we recommend to use it. However, this is a strap on aqua stat that goes on directly to the pipe, it is not a capillary type.
